We spent the night only here. Plenty for kids to do and they had the cleanest bathrooms /showers I have come across so far whilst traveling in the Outback. I would recommended families stopping here to rest.

Great spot stayed here in july 2015. Kids had a ball. Staff very friendly clean toilets. Would recommend to others. Even being in winter kids where able to use the pool which was clean and tidy. Laundry facilities may need upgrade to having more machines as seems lots of people attend after being out bush.

We came to Alice after visiting Oodnadatta and Uluru. We really needed some time to relax and enjoy our van. The sites were large and flat and very easy to set up in. On arrival the reception was lovely and then when we got to our site a manager was waiting to make sure we found the correct site and...

This is the rudest caravan park we have come across in, all of our whole trip around Australia. Kids were really looking forward to staying here, but after the extremely rude way we were treated on "check in", we ended up leaving and staying elsewhere. This park also charges premium price to only have their watersides run for 2 hours...

We stayed at this IMMACULATE caravan park for three nights and we couldn't have asked for any more. The site was grassy and had more than enough room. We were located beside the playground so our girls could ride bikes and play at park and we could see them at all times. Would recommend asking for a similar site next...

Nice clean holiday park. Kids entertained by pool, great waterslide for adults upto 110kg too. Amenities well kept & excellent camp kitchens scattered around the park. But don't forget your locks for bikes and keep valuables and alcohol locked up too.
